peugeot ue-18 mixte is done! (pics)

so i guess its a late 60's ue-18 (6 digit serial number).. built it up for the girlfriend with a new sturmey archer 3 speed coaster (700c).. she really likes it.

stripped it and did a spray can paint job.. it came out pretty nice.

Looks pretty sharp, a color-matched frame pump would compliment it nicely. How convenient is using the bell in that position?

Pretty nice, I expect you found a large back cog to go with it? What did you find? It's a very nice build. I just picked up an Apollo (Kuwahara) mixte for my girlfriend. I don't think I want to do a 3 speed conversion but it is a consideration, I am digging the original fenders and rear rack. My friend has a peugeot with the same fenders and rack (early 70s), and now you have me thinking of seeing if he won't let me have them for the build.

Very nice! I like the choice of frame color.

By any chance are those handlebars made by Wald? I've been trying to find a good picture of the Wald cruiser #867 handlebars and those look very much like them.

I'll second the nice color comment
What did you use to outline the lugs? I'm toying with the idea of doing mine.

I'm interested in the lugs as well. My Univega came with some gold detailing but it's worn down (after ~25 years) and I'd like to touch it up--over the factory paint, though.

Also, I've got to ask about the basket. What's the little bracket thing holding it up over the fender?

I have a Peugeot that I am reworking also...AND want to bolt a bell to the same shifter boss. How did you mount it, or what kind of bell is it? All the ones I have seen are rivited together.

Nice work by the way

I like the way you mounted a bell on the single shifter boss. I did the same thing on my daughter's PA10. Great minds think alike!

I apologize for raining on the parade, but for her safety I emphatically advise you to add a front brake. You can get a small front rack to hold the basket out of the way of the brake caliper and cable.

On a more positive note, the overall look, particularly the color, the mudguards, and the basket, is great.

The Japanese bells from Velo Orange, Jitensha Studio and other places have a brass stud that screws into the clamp. That stud is the correct size to screw into the boss, but the thread pitch is wrong. You can shorten that stud and force it into the boss. it won't hurt the threads in the steel boss since it's relatively soft brass.

Don't buy the aluminum version of the bell. It saves a little weight but aluminum bells sound terrible compared to brass.

eh-heh...I see now. I thought it was a long "bolt" that went from the top of the bell dome all the way through to the boss. VO to the rescue...again.

That looks awful purty! But that front ring makes my knees hurt! I love the color, too.

Indeed!

I like the way the seat post sets off the rest of the colour. Is that a cover on the basket?

I like the Nitto Promenade bars on your mixte. I put North Road bars on my wife's mixte but she says they are too narrow. So I'll be switching to the Promenades.
